Symantec Enables Windows Protection In Minutes

Quoting EFY Times

Symantec Corp has launched Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 7.0 -- the latest version of its complete and fast Windows system recovery solution. The company claims that the advancement has been made keeping the concerns of the mission-critical environments into consideration i.e. to make all systems — from servers to desktops to laptops — easily and quickly recoverable.

Backup Exec System Recovery provides performance improvements and adds support for Microsoft Vista, x64-bit platforms, VMware ESX Server and Microsoft Virtual Server. It enables businesses to recover complete Windows systems in minutes. It also offers enhanced Microsoft exchange, virtual and data recovery capabilities as well as new centralised management to give IT administrators added flexibility and simplified management to protect valuable IT assets.

Darrell Riddle, director, product management, Symantecm affirms, “Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 7.0, the gold standard in complete Windows system recovery, ensures customer confidence in the recovery process through revolutionary capabilities along with unprecedented speed and reliability.”

Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery is a disk-based solution that is much ahead of the manual system recovery which involves long and tedious process of capturing an exact copy of a system — including operating system, applications, system settings, user settings, and data — in a single recovery point. However, the Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery restores the complete system in a fraction of the time of traditional methods.

All that the IT administrator is required to do is to simply select the recovery point to restore the system. Even the recovery of individual e-mails, files and folders gets done faster. The administrators can centrally create backup jobs, view real-time status, run reports, quickly resolve any problem identified and add new systems quickly and easily as required.

The recovery system also offers the web search experience called 'Backup Exec Retrieve' to make it easy for users to recover their own files and folders without IT intervention. A new 'Exchange Retrieve' option simplifies exchange recovery, providing fast and easy recovery not only of the entire Exchange server but of individual messages, attachments, folders and mailboxes.

This new option even offers recovery of dissimilar hardware and physical-to-virtual (P2V) conversion, amongst other features, where data protection is already ensured with Backup Exec.

Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 7.0 has been priced at $1,095 per server and $69 per workstation. Backup Exec System Recovery may be purchased and installed separately, or together with the entire family of Backup Exec product offerings.
